Abstract

wrt space at exposition; Walker offers to go with and call on Berger "and express the strong official interest felt in your exhibition." Berger sympathetic but space had already been allocated to other exhibitors. "He explained that at the time of Mr. Batchelor's visit the applications for space were so few that his main concern was how to fill it up," but now needed to cut down on exhibitions and "refuse many applications altogether." Puskas also took more space than your cable authorized him. So Berger says he cannot allot 12 of 24 salons to TAE; but will see if he can get the grand staircase and space at head of staircase for him to show electric light. Gives details and dwgs of the space. Poss select for exposiition activities; seems to cover lot of ground. dh 30sep02
